Pre requisite: BE 100 Engineering Mechanics

Course Objectives: To enable the students to calculate stresses and strains generated in material
due to external loads for various types of loading conditions

Syllabus: Concept of stress. Concept of strain. Stress-strain relations. Calculating internal forces
(Normal force, shear force and bending moment diagrams) Behavior of axially loaded members.
Behavior of members subjected to bending moments. Behavior of circular members subjected to
Torsion. Shear stresses in beams. Transformation of plane stresses. Mohr circle. Concept of
design of beams. Buckling of columns. Indeterminacy.
